after having read about the Miracle of Bolsena, after which the feast of COrpus Christi was instituted, I also read about the bacteria, (sometimes fungus, which was talked about in another thread), Serratia marcescens. As you may know, it attacks bread and the likes, forming a bright red spot and sometimes forms a viscous liquid when the colony is big. Thus, it looks like blood.
Then I read that in 1978 the bishop of Orvieto asked for an analysis, which was refused by the Chapter.
So my questions are:
Why was the anaysis denied? Some miracles were given to analize without problems.
Since miracles and apparitions are not articles of faith, what is the importance to give to the ones which the Church recognized as true?
Can a feast be abolished? Even theoretically, if the Miracle was false, that doesn’t deny the Presence, but could a feast be abolished because based on a falsehood?
